The factory Wolf team is set to take part in the remainder of the Asian Le Mans Series season, announcing Monday that its Avelon Formula outfit will enter the upcoming round at Fuji Speedway with a single-car entry in the CN class.
Denis Lian, James Mitchell and a to-be-determined third driver will pilot the Wolf GB08 in the Three Hours of Fuji, scheduled for Aug. 31.
The effort follows a Wolf GB08 entry from ATL Wolf Asia at last month’s season-opener at Inje, which was withdrawn due to lack of spare parts following an accident in practice.
The ATL team, led by Ingo Strackerjan, has been the Asian importer for the Italian prototype manufacturer.
“Asia, and particularly China, is a market that we believe will represent the future of motorsport in the coming years,” said Wolf Racing Cars General Manage Giovanni Bellarosa.
‘The decision to take part in the Asian Le Mans Series was taken to provide a reference point and a direct assistance to all our clients located in the far east.
“We already sold several cars in Malaysia and Singapore, but up to now we did not have a specific presence in Asia allowing us to follow closely teams and drivers providing them with the same quality that features our cars and that makes the Wolf GB08 the most winning car on the market in the category.”
The status of ATL’s effort, meanwhile, remains unclear. Additional CNs from Craft-Bamboo Racing and Eurasia Motorsport are also expected to bolster the grid for the next round.
